inserted 63 billion u.s. dollars into it. that means 400 billion u.s. dollars inserted into the markets since monday. whether that is sustainable or not is another matter. as you walk around tokyo, a city of 14 million normally jam-packed with people the streets are almost empty. shopping hours cut in half. i would say many of the stores into which we've ventured for food and water and the rest, 90% of the shelves are empty. they are having trouble getting things imported. today we are told they are going to get more food and water off ships coming into the ports to the south of us. they believe some of that will cure itself. for today there's concern not just up the coast but here in tokyo as well. >> sean: you answered the food question. there had been long lines for gas and limits on the amount you can buy. is that still going on? >> shepard: that's very much the case. many stations here even in tokyo are closed. bottled water difficult to get up the coast. there are many areas to which officials can't travel and journalists can't travel, unless you walk. there are many towns that ar
, it appears the worst may be over. the tsunami warning that has been in effect here along the western u.s. has been lifted. now this region is under a tsunami advisory. the bay area is in good shape. in san francisco we did see some title surging earlier today, nothing major. what a difference just 80 miles south where the tsunami slammed into the santa cruz harbor. no huge waves, buturç the surge flowed in and out 10 miles-an-hour, twice as fast as the colorado river moves through the grand canyon. it was a dramatic sight. the force of all that water sunk some boats, capsized others and sent a few out to sea. some of the older docks broke loose leaving the water q" with debri no question this is a multi-million dollar disaster. farther north near the oregon border where the waves reached eight feet in height. the topography left cities like crescent city especially vulnerable. that fishing town was slammed by a series of tsunamis. the first hit about 7:30 this morning. foretore the harbor apart --ag?z for the harbor apart. the docks are gone. officials were warning that a bigger surge could

is the u.s. on the sidelines? >> don't tell me we can't do a no-fly zone over tripoli. >> sean: john edwards may be indicted soon. we are on the road to 2012, hannity starts right here, right now. tonight president obama's views on the tea party in america has been exposed.ç stunning excerpts from a new book reveal the president's belief that racism was in fact a deep seated motivation of the movement. the absurd assessment can be found in family of freedom, presidents and african-americans in the white house. according to the book at a private white house dinner in may of 2010 the president explained that race was wobbly a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right wing activists in the tea party movement. rather than dispute that notion, president obama agreed and reportedly called racism the subterranean agenda of the movement. without a shred of evidence the president has no problem labeling the tea party as racist. in recent years he's been quick to if forgive racially insensitive remarks made by some on the left. remember whe
